I stand corrected Jeffers. I used to be whiz-bang on American history but nowadays I can't even remember what state I live in.

OK, sounds like the smack talk is starting. I'm not much of a football fan but I'll be sure to drink too much beer tonight to keep up tradition.

Looked like some of the pics you posted. Beautiful place you have down there. Wife's dream is to visit Scotland, not mine. I wanna go down under!
Been to Inverloch when I lived in Melbourne for a few years Hoss, but I went no further into Victoria than the Murray River on my two wheeled escapade. Pretty country down there, and the sloping those Victorians enjoy is almost criminal! south winds rolling in off the great southern ocean would have any sailplaner drooling.

Cool bike TJ, I want one too!

Jeff, sounds like you have fallen the right side up there, slopes all around? you lucky bugger. We need photographic evidence!

Yuppers!



I've been busy with a fistful of markers.

I can now say that the Radian is uniquely mine now.















The color is a bit off. Silly phone.

That's kool Katie, looks better than stock! Flew my Radian P first time on Saturday and Sean was right, I have to begrudgingly give it credit where due as a thermaling bird, pretty good for a heavy foamy, your Radian will be lighter again too so should be better in lighter air. The flaps work really well, almost zilch stall, and the CG can go much further back than the 70mm recommended.

But it has pretentions that it's airfoil was never designed to absorb in terms of speed, these things can go too fast quite easily with the given brushless and get way out of shape, really bad wing flex. In fact, I would go as far to say that I get more fun out of the humble Easyglider, just my 2c worth but.


Look at me, it's disgraceful, isn't it.. I start a thread on building wooden sailplanes years ago and here I am prattling about throw-away ARF foam gliders, that have motors!!!! See what I have been reduced to? credibility is all slipping away.. Forgive me, Ray, and Jeff.

Now Now Steve: let's put things into proper perspective here: the foamies are doin' excatly what they are supposed to do- learnin' old dogs like me how to drive the 'other sticks'- heckens, mine's been stuck in the trees 3 x now- all cuzz of the wrong switch bein' flipped- I sure didn't want to do that to 1.5 years of work!

That thing looks great Katie!

Yeah Steve, Hoss called me up raving about his Radian and I kinda thought "OK, he's finally snapped. FedEx pressure got to him". However, he, Keith (Crazy Brit) and I met at a school soocer field one Saturday and flew the pants off a Radian and Radian Pro. Too much fun. Yep, I hate to admit it but the things fly great. Why I haven't bought one yet I don't know.
